My cd drive doesn't mount automatically in Slack


hello,

Is there a way to configure KDE so that my cd drive will mount automatically whenever I insert a CD in Slackware 10.1?

thanks,

thorney

This is not a KDE issue. You have to configure this in your /etc/fstab. Here is mine from Mandriva 2006 beta, it mounts all cd's automatically.
Code:
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs notail 1 1
/dev/hda6 /home reiserfs notail 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
/dev/hda7 /multimedia reiserfs user,notail 1 2
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

You can also try to mess with automount for the complete automagic.
